To some of the Plath family members, Olivia came into the picture, married Ethan, and turned his world upside down. Family matriarch Kim Plath was initially upset that Olivia's influence would have an impact on Ethan's younger siblings –– including Moriah.

Eventually, Olivia's influence did impact Moriah. So much so that Moriah moved in with Ethan and Olivia. But does she still live with the couple?

Although he jokes that he's "impressed" she cleaned her room before she left, he's also clearly saddened by the unexpected change. And it likely has to do with Moriah's deteriorating relationship with Olivia.
